Those signs are not a good sign. From what you have posted, I would say your amp is toast. Check to make sure your subs aren't blown. Hook up a separate speaker to each channel to make sure it isn't your subs. Check your RCAs to make sure you don't have a nick in them some where. Just get any pair of RCA's that you know are good and run them directly from the head unit to the amp. Good luck.

Protect Light On Amp Being Weird


Could try switching right and left subs. If the problem moves to the other side pull the wiring and redo.
Then if the wiring is ok check the sub.

We have an old amplifier from back in the 80's and 90's. Its 500watts, the right channels (both main and sides) work fine and loud, but the left channels produce very low sound. I checked the fuse and its...


Have you checked the final transistors on that weak channel? They may look fine but may be weak. You can pull them and check them on your multimeter with the diode check and cross it with the data sheet for that transistor.

How conect one subwofeer 12


The sub woofer can be connected by bridging one side of the right channel to the other side of the left channel. Usually this will be marked on the speaker connection terminal and use will not have any trouble to locate. If not use the + ve of the right and the - ve of the left to connect to the sub woofer. turn it on and check . If you find the phase different- with less bass- reverse the connection and try. this will work fine. Good day

My brother just bought an A2300HCX and almost the same thing happen. 1 of the gauges (left side) was no movement. We tryed hooking the amp to the right side, and it works. The Left side turns out was shot, had to get it fixed. So sorry to tell you but sounds like one of the channels has internal damage. I know this isn't the good new you were wanting to hear, but hope it was helpful

Car subwoofer wont play loud


You blew up a channel in your amp. Being that it's a Pioneer amp, I would throw it away and get another.

Only one sub works


The amp should produce no output when using the left negative and the right positive.

If the amp works bridged (left positive and right negative) with one speaker AND works when you connect one speaker from the left positive to the right positive, it would appear as though the right channel isn't getting any signal.

Try inserting only the left signal cable (nothing plugged into the right RCA jack) to see if the right channel will work when a speaker is connected to the right channel speaker terminals.

Sony Xplod 500w green power light no sound


try running the system with a cross-over configuration.

So your left + will be left + and your right + will be in the right + but put the right (-) where the left (-) is and left (-) where the right (-) is. If that doesnt work, then that means that you shorted out your audio out channels. the only way you can fix that is if you have good soldering skills. But other than that I'de say scrap it, unless you have the high outputs and then buy another amp, some mids and highs and connect the mids and highs to the xplod

My amp turns on but once you turn the volume up it shuts off


What is happening is an overload situation. If you can use either left or right (white or red) RCA inputs but not both, then the amp is overloading and getting hot internally and probably getting ready to die. You'll need someone to fix the final drivers in the amp.
Hope this helps, and please rate my advice.
Thank you, and good luck!!

Boss chaos 150 200 watt that shows light but doesn't produce sound


If this is the CH150, it's not bridgeable. Try connecting it normally (one speaker per channel) to see if it will produce output.

LED turns on, but power light doesnt and there is no sound coming out of it.


it sounds to me like you have a bad ground or a short in the ground wire. try checking the ground cable as well as theremote wire (blue), and make sure the ground is connected to an unpainted,clean surface such as the frame of your car.
